Yes, that is the wave that he is going to be in.

Does anyone know which BAD parts go with which figure?  I reall want to build theHK-5 figue, but I know I'llnevr see the Conep Snow Trooper r R2-X2.  (I have a line on the Luke, AT-AT driver and Zuckuss and already have the Bespin Guard and ICMG).

So far here's what I have:
ICMG - Right Arm
Bespin Guard - Left Arm
Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder) - Head and rifle
Zuckuss - Right Leg
AT-AT driver - Torso
R2-X2 - ??
Concept Snowtrooper - ??

The extras in the case are:

Snowtrooper - ??
Agen Kolar - ??
Plo Koon - ??
Commander Bacara - ??
Commander Deviss - ??


I guess I'm reeally just looking for the left leg....anyone know which other figure comes with it?

Finally opened the last of this wave - Bespin Guard, Zuckuss and Willrow.

The Bespin Guard is prety good, a bit tall, but well made otherwise.

Zuckus would be perfect if it wasn't for the cut of the skirt. I'll have to take a needle and thread to it to close the gap.

Wilrow is alright.

The HK Droid is just as good as the other.

I opened up one of the Bespin Guards that I bought and I can't get his hat to "stick" on for the life of me.  Is this common?  Is the hat just supposed to rest on the top of his head?

Yes.  I reviewed this figure as part of getting back in the swing of things, and of the ones I have the hat's an issue on all of them.  I got a POTJ hat to sit better, actually.

This is most likely an issue that's occurred during production, as sizes can change on some items, and I'm guessing a slight shrinkage[/end Costanza] issue with the hat.

The hats on mine fit okay, just look like they ride a tad bit too high up on his head.

They tend to fall off a little easily too...  I'm ok with them though.

I notice this wave more and more locally, and I gotta say the repacks are great.  And at $6 to boot.  I'm nabbing Scanner Techs here and there, and SNowtroopers and stuff too.

I'd probably buy another of the repaint astromech and Willrow Hood but I don't see them as often as some of the others like the Bespin Guard and (oddly enough) Zuckuss.  Zuckuss I see routinely.  THe AT-AT Driver at times lingers.  He'd be doing better with an AT-AT to ride I think.

The Left Leg for HK-50 comes packed with three different figures:
BD-46 Stormtrooper
BD-54 Zuckuss
BD-55 Snowtrooper

It depends on what case you get, Wave 12 or Wave 12 Revision 1, for the Stormtrooper.  He comes with the left leg in wave 12 cases but the right arm in W12R1.  Zuckuss and Snowtrooper keep the same parts for both cases.

I had found this wave a week ago for the FIRST time ever (!) and I was surprised to find that the Plo Koon figure from the ROTS wave included the silver (repainted) arm to the HK figure. I had read over yonder at JTA that there had been a revision to the ESB case.

Just a peculiar observation; the revision case of ESB has new UPC stickers over the old one. Odd. Still the same DCPI though.

I've noticed those at Target as well as at WM and TRU. I've also noticed that those figures omit the Qui-Gon/Eopie certificate and bubble sticker.

I too noticed this, and a number of the figures aren't in my WM's system for some reason.  Death Star Luke in particular I noticed.

Was that Revision case always set up that way with those figures, or was it changed at all?  I wasn't expecting to see things like the Gungan Warrior and Obi-Wan from E1 again, but I wasn't sure who was always scheduled all along to be in those case revisions for the ESB2.0 wave.

I'm pretty sure that the Wave 12 Revision 1 cases changed from what was originally published.  I updated my lists and it looks like, unfortunately, I removed the original info and didn't keep it for reference.

Two of the figures, Plo Koon and the Stormtrooper, changed what Build-a-Droid part they came with in the first W12 case also.

I bought the AT-AT Driver from the W12R1 case and he has a barcode sticker over the POP.
